DETROIT — Worshipping God in a uniquely Detroit style, hundreds gathered Sept. 3 at St. Moses the Black Parish in Detroit, singing praise with jazz accompaniment in a soulful spirit of prayer.
The third annual Mass to Honor Detroit's Jazz Heritage, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Detroit's Office of Black Catholic Ministry, featured traditional jazz instrumentation, praise music and a homily by Fr. Marko Djonovic. Attendees gathered for a reception after Mass.
The celebration recognized the unique history of jazz in the Detroit community, as well as the contributions the style has made in building up the Catholic faith of the city.
